The Pels have had, by far, the league's weakest schedule up to this point. Hopefully, these early losses don't wind up costing the team later in the season.
The best way to make the playoffs is probably to have a great record against the five teams they're fighting for playoff position with (T'Wolves, Blazers, Lakers, Nuggets, Mavs). But they could've made things a lot easier for themselves if they would've beaten the teams they were supposed to beat.

At the end of the year we will know how hard the schedule was more than we will know now.
teams get hot at different times.
Agreed, it is more difficult to paint that picture during the season. However, because Philly and Phoenix got off to solid starts, the current numbers may not be accurate in saying just how easy the schedule was.
